In June, ECI REC sent checks to former members returning patronage dividends. Many have not yet cashed their checks. A list of names is available here for download.These dividends will be forfeited to the Cooperative if not claimed within one (1) year.
Help make sure these members don't leave money on the table. If you know someone listed, please contact that person, or next of kin, and ask them to contact our office at 877-850-4343. People not able to present the necessary documentation may not contact ECI REC on the behalf of a listed person.
Patronage represents themargins, or profits, that the Cooperative earns on electricity purchased by its member accounts. When ECI REC’s financial condition allows, these margins are returned back to the members who generated them. Current members who received electricity from ECI REC in 1996 and/or 2006, the years for which patronage was retired, saw a credit line on their June bills. If you have any questions about this, please call us toll-free at 877-850-4343.
